Silver Gilt...

Happy Sunday,

A really quick post today showing the Oval cut and emboss folder used as an aperture with a media plate centre piece.  However I think the bow is a little large for the card TBH...

















Enjoy...

  1. The tree in the aperture and the embossed background are both lovely. I do agree about the size of the bow.

  5. Morning John, another beauty today, although I think you are right about the bow, it detracts your eyes from the embossing folder a bit. But what do I know, you are the expert.

    Off to Martine and Hellens workshop this morning.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs June Smith xxx

  6. A lovely card. I always have difficulty with bows - I'm never satisfied with them! I hardly ever use them for that reason. xxx

  8. Lovely card today, possibly does need a smaller bow so you can see more of the card.

  11. Hi John
    A lovely card.
    It was great to see you yesterday at Newbury. My husband actually said "I've had a lovely day" which was so nice as be could have been bored, but he enjoyed the demos and looking at all the samples.

  12. Hi John,Really mice card,bow is a little big where it is might have looked better placed along opposite side down fold od card and vertical rather than angled at least that's probably where I would have placed it,but I like bows.Stay healthy and happy

  17. Hello John, a lovely card, these folders make it so easy to create beautiful cards, the bow is a little large, but still pretty. Have a great day everyone and stay safe in the snow. Bx

  23. Hello John,
    Gorgeous, opulent card today. You put whatever size bow you want, where you want. Me, I'd make it a tad smaller and put it somewhere else ha ha. Now wouldn't it be boring if we all did the same thing?

  24. Very pretty one today though the bow is still a little large for taste, however as Maureen (above) said - It would be boring if we all did the same thing.

  25. Hi John,
    I really like this idea - using the embossing folder as an aperture in the silver. It looks great!
